Does this climbing kit look ok?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, looking at putting together my first personal climbing kit. Fairly new to climbing as I passed my CS 38/39 in 2019 while at college and did some work on other peoples equipment but due to health issues I had to stop early on in 2020.

 

I've put together what I think is a fairly basic climbing kit excluding spikes and a flip line, would appreciate any feedback on any of the gear I've listed below or if anybody feels I've missed anything important.

 

1x Petzl Sequoia Harness (2019) Size 1
1x Petzl Vertex Vent Helmet Combination - Chipper Spec - Black, Personal
1x Silky Zubat Arborist Professional Saw
1x Silky Zubat Saw Scabbard - 300/330mm
1x Marlow 13mm Split Tail - 5.0m
1x Yale XTC-Fire Rope Spliced - 30m
1x Yale XTC-Plus Rope Spliced - 30m
2x Marlow Boa Prusik Loop - 50cm
3x Teufelberger 10mm Ocean Polyester Eye2Eye Hitch
1x DMM Pinto Pulley
2x DMM Hitch Climber Pulley
1x DMM Boa 30kN Locksafe Carabiner - Multipack (3)
1x Dmm Ultra O Locksafe Carabiner - Triple Multipack (3)
1x HBROS x DMM Ultra O Locksafe Carabiner

Looks good, but you also need a lanyard and a steel core flip line.

Hi mate, my intention was to use the marlow 5m split tale in conjuction with the dmm pinto and a eye2eye hitch to imitate the CElanyard by teufelberger as my lanyard. Don't think I'll be doing any removals any time soon so no need for flip line either. Cheers for the feedback.

No removals …..? Really ? Are you collecting seeds or climbing for sport ?

Neither, this kit is to get me back into the swing (😁) of tree climbing and add pruning, crown lifting etc to the services my business offers. I intend to progress to removals eventually but won't be doing so for some time.

1st aid kit? rescue knife?

a couple of 1m slings always useful, lighter sewn tape ones not the big yellow buggers

All good suggestions, I have first aid kits I've thrown together already as well as a knife I can use. Slings are something I'd forgotten though! Cheers

I don’t think you can go wrong with the lanyard you have made up. I use the marlow split tale 5m with teufelberger eye to eye with the hitch climber with vt. I don’t use a Steelcore flip line everyone has a different preference and setup. 👍
